Pro tip: John Hancock didn’t sign the Constitution pic.twitter.com/qFQ2oYFmKa

Yes, John Hancock’s signature, though famously enormous and well-flourished, does not appear on the U.S. Constitution—rather it’s the Declaration of Independence that bears his massive mark. But Americans do tend to think of their founding fathers as a unit, don’t they?

Louis-Dreyfus, however, seemed to indicate that she and Rolling Stone—which has yet to comment on the matter—were in on the joke, alluding to a hapless White House staff character on her HBO political comedy as the guy responsible for the gaffe. Makes sense!
